IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 19, 2018--Cylance Inc., the leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions, today announced that Internet Initiative Japan Inc. has become a Cylance managed security service provider (MSSP) partner to strengthen security measures at endpoints for its customers’ corporate networks.

More than 10,000 large and mid-sized enterprises and government agencies trust IIJ to manage their security environments. CylancePROTECT will be available as one of IIJ’s Secure Endpoint Services in October. CylancePROTECT is designed to prevent the most notorious and advanced cybersecurity attacks before they execute, offering quiet confidence to organizations around the globe.

“We recognize the need for stronger protection at vulnerable points across an organization so that fewer attacks successfully execute,” said Mamoru Saito, Division Director, Advanced Security Division at IIJ. “Fewer successful attacks mean fewer personnel resources needed for costly detection and response activities, allowing our customers to manage system complexity with comprehensive, reliable protection at every endpoint.”

The IIJ Secure Endpoint Service will include CylancePROTECT in the cloud; the CylancePROTECT management console integrated with IIJ’s dashboard to visualize endpoint security status; and a closed-area connection that does not require a VPN layer.
